Scholastic Standing

Students admitted to the School of Criminal Justice are assumed to be above-average students who possess the potential to deal successfully with all course requirements. The expected quality of performance is high in all academic matters, including written assignments and class participation. Candidates for the master's degree must have a cumulative grade-point average of 2.83 (excluding one course). Only two courses with the grade of C or C+are acceptable toward the master's degree. When a student's cumulative grade-point average falls below 2.83 in more than two semesters, the M.A. Scholastic Standing Committee recommends dismissal from the program for academic deficiency. Also, see the section on Scholastic Standing in the chapter on Academic Policies and Procedures in this catalog.
